Clipboard Infoloop

Calendar Book

This product can be used as a clipboard as well as an induction loop. The customer should not be very far away from the speaker. This works in much the same way as the Ezeeloop but is more lightweight and does not need to be positioned on a desk. When switching on, the customer should hold down the 'on' switch to choose how long they want the clipboard to stay on for; 20, 40 or 60 minutes. The customer should hold the clipboard up towards them-at an angle- until they can hear through the loop. If using as a clipboard, a thick pad of paper should be used to prevent noise interference from writing.  Clipboard Infoloop

Conference Induction Loop

This induction loop is concealed within a conference folder. Conversation can be recorded by attaching a recording device to the folder (the Conference is equipped with a 3.5mm jack). This induction loop had quite a long hearing range (a distance of approximately 20 metres was tested).

 

The customer should be right in front of the folder, the folder should be open. Turn the switch to 'on'. The customer should put the neck loop on and plug the cable in to the 'T' output.There is a volume control dial on the neck loop.
